I am running the Great North Run again, 28 years after the first time I ran (hopefully a little faster this year!)With the help and inspiration of my children I have been training regularly but have completely taken for granted the availability of fresh water, an essential when running in the heat this year! I cannot imagine what it would be like to walk the distance of a half marathon every day to collect fresh water...this is why the work that water aid do is so important.
So for those of you who wouldn't in a million years consider running 13 miles please sponsor me - I'll run it for you! For those of you who would, you know what I am going through so please support me to raise money for a wonderful cause ;-)
...and yes that is the original great north run t-shirt I got when I was 8 years old!
